NICOLA JACKSON

The Bloggs

18th Mar 2017 - 5th Jun 2017

Dunedin-based artist Nicola Jackson is known for her vivid use of colour, intricate detail, papier-mâché forms and her ongoing exploration of human anatomy. The Bloggs – a title that refers to the British colloquialism ‘Joe Bloggs’, to denote the typical everyday man – considers what it is that makes us human. Here, Jackson has created her version of an anatomy museum, filling vitrines and cabinets with a range of objects and adorning the walls with paintings. In these works Jackson has paired key anatomical elements with qualities that go beyond the physical but ultimately aid in classifying us as human.
